    Re: Shalom Sesame
    That’s really cool.

  • Jennifer is sexy!!

    Love Reese and Jake they are perfect for each other!!!!

  • Justme24

    Oh no! For God’s sake and your baby’s, Jake, come out already. Deceiving the public that you’re in a relationship with her, it’s not right! Nobody cares that you’re gay.

  • LuckyMe

    Awwwwww!! They make such a fantastic couple!! I’m soooo jealous. I want a Jake for my very own :) That sesame street sounds awesome, we’ll watch it for sure. They are my favorite couple, I hope they get married :)

  • ihavenolife

    happy couple. they look so married and content.

  • JoeyLow

    they look good together. and damn, loving Jake’s flip-flops. He’s got drop-dead gorgeous toes. damn he sexy

  • Sassy Nicole

    They are one strange couple. Something about them together makes me feel funny and not in a good way. The only couple that makes me feel funny in a good way is Brangelina. Yummy.

  • yeyye

    Jake gay? Thats a joke. He would not create a fake relationship for that long.

    Fans like that are just creepy.

  • sam

    at first i thought this was just a fauxmance because they were in a film together but that was quite some time ago and i really feel like these two are the real deal. they do complement each other quite nicely.

  • http://www.crazycritics.com nick

    nice couple

  • claire

    Everybody in Hollywood knows they are fake and knows Jake’s gay. They laugh at fans who believe this crap’s real.

  • Autumnm

    Why does everyone say he’s gay? I don’t think they’d be faking the relationship for so long. They seem genuinely happy and in love.

  • rachel

    ah i love this couple. they’re so cute together.

  • .letty

    love these 2, Great Cute Couple!!

  • LuckyMe

    I would be cute if they got married and had a couple more kids :)

  • Cassidy

    Drop the beard Jake. Drop the beard.

  • Halli

    Greg Kinnear, Christina Applegate and Cedric the Entertainer are not Jewish. So I find their participation in this Shalome Sesame Street project hilarious.

  • Jake is gay

    @Autumnm: Oh please don’t say he isn’t gay. My sanity depends upon his being gay. If he isn’t gay think what he and she might be doing together. Ohhhhhh it is so awfullywaffley just to imagine……..when I do I get sickywicky and begin to feel vomitty and here here….oh God….here it comes….up….up…aaaaarrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhh…….oh it was so awfully awfully. Oh please say he is gay gay gay gay gay fomance fomance fomance…i don’t want to get vomitty again and…..oh please don’t ever say he isn’t gay………

  • Jake is gay

    Everybody knows that everybody in Hollyweird is gay. The guys are fags and the women are dikes. So it is obvious these two are toooooo…..Every romance is a fomance fomance fomance…….there isn’t a straight person anywhere in Hollywood. We all know that. Come on people. Don’t be deluded into thinking anybody in Hollyweird is normal. They aren’t.

  • Jake is gay

    You never see his dog anymore. What happened to his dog? I bet the dog got disgusted at the fomance and left. “No more of this pretense for me” bowwow said, “I’m outta here.” “When Jakey was gay and needed me all the time I stayed around, but now that he is pretending to adore this witch, I can’t stand it anymore.”

  • Jake is gay

    Most boring fauxmance couple ever.
    yawn

  • lilly

    I don’t know if they are real or not…. I just get a weird vibe from them both.I don’t know why really.But anyways I think they both look skanky
    and stinky.Thats great if they really are in love but alot of these celebrities really give me caution warnings.Like they be together
    for just their image.

  • Reese stinks

    Jake’s beard is gross

  • Tommy

    but we already know the Jewish culture: Hollywood!

  • Katie

    So sweete… they’re a great couple. Both beautiful, talented and sucessful. They’re so lovely and it’s really nice to see how they respect each other. Cutie!

  • fauxmance

    Reese and Jake are two phony publicity wh0res.

  • Danielle

    Reese and her castrated puppy out for a walk. Jake looked so interesting until he decided the way to look straight was to become Mr. Witherspoon. I’m sure we are in for a week long overkill of staged photo ops from these two. Reese has 2 months of pap time to make up for.

  • Pattycake

    @Tommy: Tommy, you’re a jerk.

    It’s nice that Jake is going to participate in the Sesame Street thing. He’s a charming man and actor and, judging by his past, will throw himself into this to amuse the children as he shares his Jewish heritage. However, how this story ever got attached to these pix…smells like the PR team in full crank. Anyone else think some of these handholding pictures show how far apart two people can get and still hold hands? Do you have a rash, Reese? Or is it the heat?

  • smallqueen

    get the hell out of Venice. go back to rodeo dr, robertson.. whatever. we don’t like celebrities and paparazzi here!

  • Jake is gay

    @whortensia: Hey that’s my line but you can repeat it if you want. I love imitation and the flattery it is. Thanks for being a second me.

  • Jake is gay

    @whortensia: Hey that’s my line but you can repeat it if you want. I love imitation and the flattery it is. Thanks for being a second me.

  • Jake is gay

    @smallqueen: Pleaaaaseee, don’t you know where she lives? It’s on a private street in Brentwood, N. Gunison Drive or something like that. I doubt she would be caught dead on Robertson or Rodeo or anywhere as common and vulgar as the flats of Beverly Hills.

  • Jake is gay

    Another idea re the doggie who has disappeared. Reese got insanely jealous and told Jakey “You better get rid of the dog now that I am your beard. You seemed very very weird when you used that dog as a beard. People began to say…er..things….you know…Now you’ve got a respectable beard and you don’t need bowwow anymore. Get rid of it. Bowwow was a very bad beard because you couldn’t go down the street holding hands with it.”

  • come on

    shave that beard b!tch

  • Jake may not be gay

    @Jake is gay: You mean that it is possible that bowwow was NOT Jakey’s former beard? You mean, like, that they did “it” together? Oh this is awful. Now I will get more sickywicky than Jake is Gay and I will get vomitty all day long, just one upchucky after another, oh this is terrrrribbbbllllle….I think I need to call an ambulance and go to the ‘opital for a looooong rest. Maybe they will put me to sleep and I can stay that way for a week or so and then all those terrible images of Jakey and bowwow will b gone.

  • Dee dee

    I guess Jake can’t get any publicity on his own anymore. The only time anybody writes about his work is if there is a picture of him and his beard to go with it.

    Not that he’s getting much attention with Reese, only arranged pap photos so Just Jared a/k/a “Just Reese” can get its fix.

  • PeePee

    Ah Dedodedodedodedo is back whining again.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    =]
    they are so nice as a couple
    she looks adorable as always, with those legs better than ever =]
    didnt no jakey poo was a jew

  • http://NONEOFYOURBUSINESS FARLEY

    @Tommy:

    What about a muslim, baptist or buddhist Sesame Street?

  • dizzyspins

    ok, so Jake Gyllenhal is half-Jewish. But why the hell would Greg Kinnear and Cedric the Entertainer be teaching kids about Judaism? Why not get Christina Applegate and Lucy Lui to teach about Latino culture?

  • Jake may not be gay

    Actually when you think about it, the best beard for Jakey would be a female monkey. They could hold hands walking down the street and the monkey could run over and trash the pap’s cameras from time to time. When asked about her, Jakey could just say “well nothing to get alarmed about I’m just the monkey’s uncle.”

    why do they have to a movie it about it

    the Jewish culture=hollywood

  • Jake’s beard is gross

    Reese Witherspoon’s thighs are saggy and gross *puking*

  • emily

    Jake is really adorable.

  • nicole

    I dont know if they are a REAL couple or not. But I get really bad creepy vibes about them. Something seems not right with them. I don’t get warm chemistry from them.

  • watch

    I think they are a cute couple. You can tell that he loves her by the way he looks at her. This is the first time hearing that Jake is gay. I hope people are not saying that because he appeared in Broke Back Mountain. It’s called acting folks!

  • tipsy twits

    Inside knowledge – Jake is a gayblade. Reese is his cover and they won’t break up until she finds a guy for real. Her ex Ryan laughs his arse off at this couple.

  • YAEL

    be better to get jewish people like Ricky Ullman and others
    btw its Chanukah
